La Llorona "It's a singular piece of filmmaking, one that deals with the ugly and painful history of Guatemala in a new, fresh way. "

Bad Education "Cory Finley's layered second feature is a bitingly funny and sharply pointed movie that delivers on the promise he exhibited in his directorial debut Thoroughbreds - and then some. "

Adoration "Fabrice du Welz has crafted a visually arresting and magical film that never quite reaches its full potential but serves as a neat little film in its own right."

2/4 Jexi "This is an average comedy about a smart (aleck) phone."

Rashômon "[Kurosawa] has made it an intriguing picture, occasionally an exciting one. He accents a lot of his dramatic effect, it might be noted, with the throbbing of an increasing taut, Ravel-like bolero."

2.5/4 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil "There's enough magic dust made of sass and a decent amount of political relevance for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to fancy the imagination"

1.5/4 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil "Appalling"

1.5/5 Gemini Man "Gemini Man is too serious to be silly and too silly to be serious, and no amount of Will Smith (and there's a lot) or fancy camera tech (and there's a lot) can fix it. As far as this film's success is concerned, two Wills make a Won't."

4/5 Judy "There's nothing particularly groundbreaking or exciting about the film itself, but Zellweger's performance alone is well worth the price of admission."

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot won't change the mind of any hater. But if you're a fan, it's custom-made to make you have a good time. [Full review in French]"

B- Maleficent: Mistress of Evil "Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer shine as they square off as evil queens in a visually effective but messy and convoluted sequel to the revisiting of the classic story"

First Love (Hatsukoi) "Miike's direction is visceral, finding the filmmaker not only completely invested in this narrative but also willing to break from his formula at a drop of the hat. "

Parasite (Gisaengchung) "Bong takes this battle between classes and one family's attempt to take that much craved next step up the economic ladder, and twists it into a fun house thrill ride."

1.5/4 In the Tall Grass "A terrible misstep in the world of King adaptations that serves its purpose of confirming some of the author's works are better left alone. [Full review in Spanish]."

Je t'aime moi non plus (I Love You, I Don't) "Gainsbourg may not have the skill to nail a finale that's almost too violent, but thanks to a new restoration, Je T'aime Moi Non Plus is an absolute revelation."

Dilili in Paris (Dilili à Paris) "Feminist and anti-racist to the bone, Ocelot's latest film is a startling, if misshapen, gem that will hopefully find an audience despite a modest release schedule."

Bored in the U.S.A. "Though the performances lack charisma, Bored in the U.S.A. is a beautifully-shot film with conscientious intentions and techniques. "

Loro "Servillo's Berlusconi is nuanced in a way that nothing else in the film is. Lacking the satirical bite of a Wolf Of Wall Street, Loro is a lushly composed, toothless satire."

The Wedding Year "It's rare, in 2019, to have a genuinely good time at the movies and this, in all of its simplicity and cliche, is absolutely that."

Diego Maradona "With a scholarly eye towards research, Maradona is a richly textured, nuanced portrait not only of a titanic figure in sports, but the rise of a sportsman into a god."

17/20 The Report "...a gripping, intelligently written and deftly constructed thriller, and of course all the more compelling because it's true."

Monos "A visceral rumination on devolving social norms in the face of war, Monos is not only the return of a great filmmaker, but one of the great political allegories of 2019."

5.3/10 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil "Angelina Jolie is great for what little she has to do in the movie. Michelle Pfeiffer has a lot to do, but not much of it is good."
